Senator Risa Hontiveros has known as on the government to cease the extrajudicial killings associated to its brutal anti-drug marketing campaign.
In the wake of the police raids that killed dozens of drug suspects, Hontiveros stated the slaughter of Filipinos was not the answer to the nation’s drug problem.
“The Duterte government cannot kill its way out of the drug problem. Hindi madadaan sa simpleng patayan ang solusyon sa ilegal na droga,” she wrote on Facebook.
“Ang mga kababayan natin pinapatay pagsapit ng gabi. We refuse to accept these killings as normal. #StopExtrajudicialKillings,” she stated.
